Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – A federal grand jury has indicted three Fairbanks residents on charges of conspiring to distribute more than 100 pounds of cocaine – including some 26 kilograms – 57 pounds – seized this year by law enforcement in what authorities say is the largest-ever haul of the drug bound for Alaska.

The indictment names 29-year-old Donnell R. S. Johnson, 29-year-old Joshua Mustovich and 24-year-old Christopher Anderson.

U.S. Attorney for Alaska Karen Loffler said in a prepared statement that 26 kilos of cocaine were seized during the investigation.

The indictment alleges the three had been dealing drugs since December 2010.
